What is all the fuss about? The Costume Institute Gala, known as the Met Ball or Met Gala, is an annual ball that celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute
The red carpet evening where celebrities arrive dressed to impress is described as the fashion industry’s “Night of Nights”. Fashion industry experts and style magazines consider the event, which is hosted by Vogue, to be the fashion world’s best red carpet event. It is regarded as the top annual social event in New York. The event has been an annual affair at the Met since 1948 (the year in which the Costume Institute was founded).
This year’s Met Ball will see the opening of the exhibition “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” which aims to examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s through it’s continuing influence today.
In celebration of Punk:Chaos to Couture LibrarianChic will be launching a new range of items to our web store that highlight the timeless qualities of an enduring fashion genre.
